Since 1996, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and CUNY TV have produced together one of the few French programs to appear on American television:Canapé. Stylish and modern, Canapé is the only program entirely devoted to French cultural events in New York and the United States. This monthly half-hour show includes film releases, book translations, exhibitions, festivals, ballets, concerts and theater productions. This episode features French pianist Hélène Tysman, a laureate of the 16th International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw; DEMOCRACY, a new work by choreographer Maud Le Pladec; and political cartoonists Nadia Khiari, from Tunisia, and Khalid Albaih, a Sudanese refugee living in Qatar discuss their craft.
